Reading had never been a favorite pastime for my grandnephew until he was given his first I Survived book. He has now enjoyed reading every book in the series. My sister, his grandmother, has also read every one. Both of them feel that this recently released, I Survived the American Revolution, is the best of all. My nephew is now in Fifth Grade, which is when the American Revolution is taught, so this particular I Survived story is an asset to his studies. Beyond covering the historical facts of the American Revolution, this story has led to my sister and grandnephew having discussions concerning slavery and immigration, two issues still relevant today.
